Players have had to fight through the Executioner and Fisherman before meeting up with Commander Ereshkigal. However, those were smaller-level bosses with mostly melee attacks.

On the other hand, Ereshkigal has very powerful AoE attacks and flying strikes which will decimate players in just a short period of time. Therefore, players will have to be extremely wary right from the start in order to not take heavy damage. 

Given that Ereshkigal can attack from a variety of distances, it is advised that players keep a gap. You will need to use a heavy gun that inflicts strong damage, and should be able to dodge well.

Furthermore, you can also be served well if you are in a big group with players playing to their strengths. The fight will take some time to master, and it is likely that you will need a few tries to get it right.

Outriders Worldslayer: How to defeat Commander Ereshkigal

A major attack of Commander Ereshkigal is when she flies through the air and fires red skulls that explode when they hit their target. This is a major worry as players cannot inflict damage on her when she is in flight, as her tentacles will protect her.

Therefore, your best bet is to run and dodge the attacks as much as possible. To do a dodge roll by double-tapping W,A,S,D. Furthermore, Ereshkigal also flies straight which will be indicated by red lines, which is your sign to avoid the centre of the arena. The tentacles have a long range of attacks that will force players to be mobile all the time. 

Therefore, all the damage will be done on the ground. You will have to make headshots regularly, but do not get near the tentacles as already mentioned. The best time to attack is in-between Ereshkigal’s attacks where there’s a cooling period.

Though she tries to have her smaller minions attack you, they will be easily defeated and you can get to the main boss. When her health drops critically low, Ereshkigal will teleport to the main characters to strike.

You will notice it with a red circle, and you will have to dodge it in time. Fire at her when she reappears, and the battle will end after hitting her for some time more. 

Naturally, players will rewarded handsomely after the defeat of Ereshkigal. You will receive a PAX point, helping you in your quest for all five. Players will also receive gear, one Ascension point, and the unlocking of Trial of Tarya Gratar. 

Therefore, the process to defeat Commander Ereshkigal is a long-drawn out one which will test players’ resolve. You will have to be mobile and alert at all times. However, the battle will be worth it in the end as the rewards will more than make up for it.
